Integrity Due Diligence for Natural and Legal Persons
Helping you choose business partners which will enhance and not damage your brand
Underestimating third-party risks may have a significant effect on the reputation and financial position of entrepreneurs and businesses. Working on standalone projects, or high volume global third party reviews, we perform integrity and affiliation due diligence to help you get a fair picture of your business relationships, confidently develop strategies and take decisions.
Political and Reputational Risk Assessment
Helping you understand a new market and territory. Know before you go.
Companies entering a new market or new sector need to know how business works there. We can prepare comprehensive and customized reports, covering political and business risks in those countries where there is little separation between politics and business. We focus on the risks that particular businesses face, which may include:
- Political risk and security;
- Stakeholder analysis;
- Local partner selection;
- Bribery and corruption;
- Stability of export and import licenses.
Third Party Risk Management & Review
Helping you managing your third parties, identifying and assessing the risks, implementing proportionate mitigation measures and be compliant
International legislations like the FCPA Bribery Act (US) and the UKBA Bribery Act (UK) and subsequent prosecutions demonstrate that the use of third parties (sales agents, distributors, intermediaries, logistics providers and partners) presents high risk.
How robust and efficient is your third party risk management programme?
No matter how focused you are on compliance, there is always a blind spot and weak link in every organization. Regulators know this and spotlight third parties as a key corruption threat. Even small transactions can trigger an enforcement action, under FCPA and other statutes. We can help identify and protect against incidents of deception, fraud and corruption by designing, implementing, performing and testing third party risk and compliance programs. This also includes reviews of commercial relationships, procedure improvement, and interviews with sub-agents, and testing of sample transactions.
Asset Tracing in Turkey and Abroad
Follow the money
Asset tracing can provide significant benefits to companies in cases where a debtor's property can be recovered through litigation. We perform researches to help lenders, guarantors and beneficiaries to track the status of their debtors’ assets and identify potential assets that could be subject to recovery on a worldwide basis.
Social Media Research
Social media has revolutionised the way people communicate and interact with each other. Businesses have the opportunity to harness the power of social media to increase revenues by targeting and embracing these new channels. There is growing interest from organisations to leverage data and to integrate internal and external social media as part of their strategy. The benefits can provide an organisation with a key strategic advantage, but if not executed appropriately, it can fast become an expensive project that simply exposes the firm to additional risk.
The risks related to social media are broad. Some of the key risks can be categorised as follows:
- Brand and reputation
- Social and political
- Operational, and
- Regulatory compliance.
Background Checks and Employee Screening
Find the right candidate for key positions
People are the most valuable asset of an organization. Finding the right candidate or creating a talent pool for key positions is an important process that we can help make more reliable. We conduct background checks on candidates and employees, including their publicly available social media activity, resume verification, and analyze their biographical profiles and reputation.
